Color-coded for your toxicity.

Here’s a good question for you: “What sort of insane dimwit gets a bug up her rectum because her daughter wants to wear a red hat instead of white one?” The answer, as we’ve seen, is Elly Patterson. While I can concede the need to make sure that socks or mittens should be the same color, it seems to me that this is not a battle that Elly should have bothered fighting; then again, I don’t have the bizarre need to make sure that the people around me conform to some sort of color scheme that only exists inside my head like Elly does. Since she won’t listen to any evidence that suggests that the world will not end should a girl wear anything that isn’t a pastel, she’s going to keep on wearing her daughter down until she too believes in the desirability of her mother's color scheme. This would be bad enough if Elly didn’t have the worst fashion sense in the history of ever; the woman wanted to redecorate her living room in mauve and evergreen and eventually signed off on the teal and lavender horror that was the Settlepocalypse. The end result of her passive-aggressive bitchery is that Mike and Liz grow up so used to her interior desecrations, they're loathe to consider tasteful color schemes such as the one Evil Mira proposed or to rid their environment of Elly's God-awful furniture. Since the only person who wasn't completely corrupted into thinking that eyeball-searing color combinations were desirable was the Martian, it makes commandeering her furniture seem less of an extreme.
